commission. i want to thank you for allowing us to be here to talk about the energy retrofit programs they have been allowing us to do. it was a really simple goal. it was federal stimulus money, and the goal was to do something long term that was good and the other goal was to make sure we spend the money quickly and got jobs we were creating. what is great is we accomplished both. we wanted to celebrate that today. the city already provides about 100% clean natural gas -- not natural gas. back that up. the city provides greenhouse gas free, 100% renewable energy. what is different is we're saying now that we provide that energy, we should always still be conserving, all we still be looking at energy efficiency opportunities, and that is what we're doing. this is one of 10 sites in the city including other cultural centers, health centers, where we took this money and really changed the behavior of what is happening in those buildings. we are here to celebrate that work. we had $3 million of this money from the stimulus funds. we are updating fluorescent let's -- lance and replacing them

war on drugs. you will not stop individuals from using what has already been exposed. we are encouraging and a legal lifestyle, and illegal treatment anytime individualistic think outside of the box, because children are getting written prescriptions before they graduate from high school. veterans are coming back and snapping on their families. for those that fall in between become inmates and we are dealing with a cocktail situation that we are not treating like responsible parents or responsible citizens like we are supposed to do. 99% represents different aspects of different individuals dealing with basically the same kind of command and control issues that you can't raise humanity on. i cannot keep an abuse of lifestyle going, it has to stop at some point in time. somebody has to deal with 52 weeks or whatever type of punishment is in order. i believe the city is in violation of the geneva code and conventions. we're turning our communities, and our children are absolute examples of that with the video games, killing, music. i believe that occupy sf -- [chime] president

budget, this allows no the use of that non-recurring revenue to plug at all. supervisor kim: is this considered a one-time non- recurring revenue stream? >> you would have the policy explicitly allow the mayor and the board, as an eligible nonrecurring expense, allows you to make deposits to reserves. if we have non-recurring revenue, as the board of supervisors, you can choose those nonrecurring revenues and fund reserves. i do not know if that gets to your question. supervisor kim: kenny redefines be used to back fill ongoing expenditures? >> in years were the rainy day reserve is triggered, which is revenue is declining versus the prior year or versus the prior year peak, it allows the mayor and the board to appropriate money from the rainy day reserve equal to half the ballots in the reserve, and that money is explicitly intended to be for any purpose, including operating budget costs. supervisor kim: ok, thank you. >> this defines what discretionary revenue is. we tried that out to the charter. secondly, it excludes that that results in general fund savings or is backed by

overarching point before us today is about transparency and consistency and processed. the cha is entitled to a full and complete objective analysis under ceqa, rather than go through all of the points that the association has put forward or referred to you in the written materials and discussed what i think are the most important. first, the city violated ceqa by failing to perform required analysis before approving the project. before approving a project subject to ceqa, the city must consider a final eir or neg dec. the california supreme court has emphasized that ceqa requires environmental review to refer to products first rather than final approval. by lending its political and financial assistance to this project, the city, as a practical matter, has committed itself to the project. in august of 2009, the mayor's office of housing issued a notice of funding availability for $2 million for a housing project. c after. hp as the project sponsor, the recommended an additional $2.4 million to chp outside of the funding selection process. in july of 2010, chp executed a deed of t

us by the city of santa it is. as far as i know, if it is a question, we are in compliance with the live work authorization and the necessity. i would also add that even though it is a live work unit, at no time from the beginning were these units of affordable housing by any san francisco standard. in 15 years later, there are far from being affordable and no unit has been removed from the market because this was never used except as a single unit by the original owner that purchased it from the developers. thank you. president olague: is there additional public comment? public comment is closed. commissioner moore: i asked for this project to be taken up for the very reason that the public has discussed. the applicant's position that is obviously the very unusable story of data and procedures which i thought were alfaro and clearer, particularly san francisco has a large amount of former apartment condominium dwellers listening to this particular case could find themselves in very similar situations unless it is clearly verify that that in a conversion from single ownership, the r

not mention the alternative of using the already existing network of utility pole mounted antenna is in the richmond district. in fact, there are already 14 located in the coverage area that verizon is trying to surf, some of which are available to be shared by multiple carriers including verizon. this is a map of existing polls and antennas using to be the richmond district which are created using the inventory of the existing wireless facilities. many of these facilities are operated by companies that can accommodate more than one wireless carrier. verizon uses a network of utility poles in the sunset district. without a full discussion of why they cannot utilize this already existing network in the inner richmond, verizon cannot meet its burden of proof that this is the only alternative that will work for the neighborhood. please vote to deny a permit for this location. think you. >> thank you. next speaker. >> good afternoon, supervisors. the proposed antennas are not necessary in the richmond necessary to provide service in the event of a natural disaster. the emergency response

current zoning allows for us. i think it is important to recognize that this is being built not in some far distant part of the city but in exactly the parts of the city where high rises exist today and where we have the transportation infrastructure to support it. it will include major improvements of the streets and sidewalks, which we know will be desperately needed in that area and it will also include 11 acres of public parks, over half of which is on the terminal being built by the tjpa. importantly, it will also include a funding mechanism to help pay for all this. we can realize a net present value of over $250 million to support the transit center through the development in the area as well as fees which will help support the park and open space improvements over time. moving on, i just wanted to mention a couple of other plans and projects that we are working on. in particular, the central corridor. the central corridor is our name for the planning effort that we are focusing on along fourth street. to support and be supported by the investment that the city is making in the c
